Our eagerly anticipated trip to New York has finally been scheduled. Beth and I depart Aug. 10 for 5 days of modeling excitement. We get in early Monday, with a car to pick us up at the airport. Then we will be dropped of at the mystery location of the “model apartments.” We will have Monday evening to explore NY and get our bearings for the following day. Tues morning Beth will be getting her hair done. Where? I do not know. I have to assume that someone from NEXT modeling will be meeting jus since they will be advising on what to do with her hair. The problem with her hair is it is neither long nor short, it is shoulder length and nothing special. Beth is very excited to have someone else decide how her hair should be because she HATES to make decisions and she is NEVER happy with her hair. While it is sometimes a cute style, most of the time her bangs are hanging in her face and obscuring her vision. It also has a strange crinkly texture that we attribute to a medication she takes to control her Crohns disease.
Then after the mystery haircut on Tuesday we have photo shoots, Tues evening, Wed & Thurs, also at an undisclosed destination. I like to think that before we arrive in NY someone will fill us in on these slightly important details. I don’t know if all of these activites will be within walking distance from where we’re staying or if we’ll have to hail a cab, or travel by subway; neither of which have I done before. But Beth is brave and open to anything so I’m sure between us both we will be able to master NY and come out of this experience as experts. Then Friday morning we will have a little bit of time to explore before we have to head back to the airport, I don’t know if a car will be provided or if we’ll need to take a cab. I read that the cab ride to the airport can take an hour and cost between $45-$80, ouch!
But if all goes well we’ll have many future trips to NY to perfect our travels! And we’ve recently made a teenage friend that lives in Paris so if that trip is on the horizon we’ll have a tour guide we can call up. I hear that her and her friends usually sit around drinking wine, eating cheese and shopping. She’s my kind of girl!
